Bignor Park is licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies and partnerships in the beautiful Greek Loggia. This romantic setting within the formal gardens provides a calm and dignified backdrop for the formal proceedings of your day. There is no extra charge for you to have your civil ceremony at Bignor Park – it is included in the venue hire price. However, the Registrar fees are an additional cost and you will need to make arrangements direct with Chichester Registry Office at the time of your venue booking. Call 01243 642122 and ask for the Southern Ceremonies Team.
The Greek Loggia is a roofed, classical stone porch under which you will exchange your vows. Your guests (space for up to one hundred and fifty) will be seated on the lawn in front of the Loggia and surrounded by the glorious gardens – a more magical setting for your wedding ceremony would be hard to find. You can hire the Greek Loggia for your ceremony and The Stables or The Croquet Lawn for your wedding reception, or alternatively, you may have a small reception of drinks and canapés on The South Lawn, or perhaps afternoon tea following your ceremony.
Bignor Park has several options available for hosting wedding receptions. From drinks in front of Bignor Park House on The South Lawn with its stunning views, to The Croquet Lawn that can house capacious and elegant marquees. Or the incredibly charming, intimate, and amazingly flexible spaces within The Stables: the Coach Store, the Stove Room, the Quadrangle, the Courtyard and tucked away spaces of the Tack Room, Stalls and Garden Room (for caterers). Each space is your canvas to dress, whether that be formal, vintage or whatever your vision of a perfect wedding day may be.
